  • Notes

    • This episode features the first appearance of Mr. Schwump (or Schwamp). He appears in numerous episodes by name and in many crowd/group scene throughout the series. He never speaks a line and is thus never credited for his appearances. As a result, he has become somewhat of an enigma with fans of the show. Despite numerous efforts, no one has ever discovered the name of the actor who portrayed Mr. Schwump.
